On this segment of HarperAudio!,
T.S. Eliot reads his classic poem "The Waste Land." Born in St. Louis, Missouri, and educated at Harvard, Eliot lived most of his life in England. In 1948 he was awarded the Nobel Prize. The poem has five sections and has been split into four sound files:
"The Burial of the Dead"; "A Game of Chess"; "The Fire Sermon" and "Death By Water" ; and "What the Thunder Said."
The Wasteland is considered to be Eliot’s masterpiece, rich in symbolic, literary, and historical references as the poem explores the struggles of a soul in despair.
